- My voice, my story: the lived experience of being a non-traditional student at university. This workshop enables audience immersion in multimedia stories co-created by students using novel social participatory research to elict lived experiences of being a non-traditional student at university by engaging in telling/re-telling of stories (Jones, 2015). We focus on students from non-traditional backgrounds because research shows how the lived experiences of these students are often marginalised by institutions (Hunt et al., forthcoming; Thomas, 2012). Photovoice is seen to be effective in capturing stories and sharing the lives of non-traditional students (Warne et al., 2012; Minthorn and Marsh, 2016).
- Grassroot responses to regional educational challenges - We invite practitioners from different professional and academic backgrounds to discuss the current challenges and opportunities for promoting equity in education. We want to build a community of practice who can tackle specific regional challenges about who gets to access education. In this collective learning event we will work together to negotiate the question, “What are the challenges and opportunities for marginalised students to access education in the region?” Using participatory debate techniques, our student co-creators will facilitate small groups to share their expertise, identify solutions and sustainable ways of promoting equity in education. In harnessing the collective expertise of students, school leads, community educators, academics and widening participation (WP) practitioners from the region we will produce solutions and foster a community at a time of significant change and challenge for WP. We will appeal to our audience by creating a community of shared expertise and having a regional focus to tackle grassroots issues together. Attendees will engage with innovative debate formats, develop practical solutions to urgent challenges, reflect on existing practice and build a sense of community. This session is part of BU’s Fair Access Research project. Our practice-led research shapes new understandings and aligns with BU’s commitment to a fusion of research, education and professional practice.
